Furuno 585 not reading

 G'day all

a mate of mine has just put a 1kw tranny on his Furuno 585 (came off my boat and worked fine )and can't get a reading at all .

i have not seen the installation and did ask if he selected the 1kw option in his units menu , to which he said yes .

I'm guessing it's something in his tuning or installation   Anyone got any other ideas?

 Is there any display at all? If so could be a simple adjustment of the range and shift function.


Love the West!

Transducer rewire

Mon, 2015-08-24 18:06

so as far as I can tell there is a bit of green death (corrosion) in the transducer lead through a small nick .

i am pretty sure it can be rewired and will get my local auto sparky to have a crack at it .

fingers crossed it works cause I already spent the rent he paid for it ha ha.
